A small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active research interest in the conference themes. The Award provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics—meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world, and creating networks and lasting connections. Awardees are invited to attend the conference to present their work and play a critical organizational role in the conference by leading discussions, chairing parallel sessions, and providing assistance in session rooms.
Applications are open to those pursuing research degrees, post- and graduate students, as well as early career faculty.

It was a wonderful opportunity to network with the scholars in your field and see how they are doing in other parts of the world. I made connections with some very interesting people who may be helpful to collaborate in research projects in the future.
I really appreciate having the possibility to chat with and hear all these wonderful people. This is not a vertical dynamic, we all were treated the same and that made possible for us students to talk with amazing academics and to have their comments on our work.
This conference experience will aid me in my future because it reminded me of the importance of learning from colleagues and building upon our strengths. I feel more confident that I can communicate effectively with fellow scholars from around the world.
